Ahhh! So better late than never right? I have yet to post my classroom pictures. It has taken me awhile to make changes to the class and get used to what I see everyday. If I didn't like something, I would change it and move it around. Soo without further a dew… here it is!
This is my favorite part of the room. My desk area. I love it because it's full of bright colors and visuals for the students to be aware of . I love the quotes posters I have all over my room. The students are filled with guidance and rules and they don't even know it. =) I have the rules behind my desk because there are many times a year where I have the students sit in the reading corner (pics below) and we just sit and talk about the rules of the classroom and why it's important to follow them. It's only necessary to have the clip chart next to the rules so the students are reminded of what they are expected to follow in the room and school. I got this awesome clip chart from
Learning in Wonderland. It's the perfect color.
Next is my reading corner!
This is another one of my fave's! I changed the rug this year. Added bright purple crates (my favorite colors) and fun, cute and cozy pillows. Can you tell my favorite colors are pink and purple? LOL I am seriously all about the brights this year. Bright colors are what you see walking in my room.
My phone has recently deleted all my apps. So my pictures look kind of dull and not bright. But this is how my room looks from one angle. I think it's perfect the way I used the same borders for each section. Saved me tons of time of thinking which border goes best where.
I love the colors and the way it turned out.
There are where my center backers go. I am able to fit so much. I usually fit another pencil basket in there along with dry erase markers and crayons. Everything fits so perfect. These baskets are so useful. I even have another set by my side and put daily work in them. You can see them here.
These are how I use my other baskets for my side of the room. Every Thursday I print out all the work I need for the following week. I organize/separate them into different categories: centers, tests, lal and math. They go into these baskets and I pull them when I need them. It's been working for me for years now and I love the way it looks. =) Have you noticed I have a title for each bulletin? I love these. I grabbed these last year from The Animated Teacher. They are editable so you can make whatever you want. I laminated them and reused them again this year. Love the bright colors. Goes great in my room.
Again… sorry for the dullness in picture! I really need a good app to brighten these pics. Jeez!
Anywho as you can see the other side of my bulletin and baskets.
Another round of baskets. I plan on putting center things in them. Like markers!!
I have so many markers. It makes me so happy. We run through these like water. I was able to put these on my supply list this year and so happy I did. Everyone brought them in!!
My objectives boar is very important to me. It's mostly for me and administration, but they love coming in here and checking it out to see what we are up to for the week. It's bright and is right to the point. Very easy to understand which is my kind of thing! It doesn't hurt that the colors are cute either. This set of objectives was a combo from Crockett's Classroom and Learning in Wonderland
Now for my board on the other side of my room, I have fabric! It's the same fabric as last year. No bubbles or looking funky towards the end of the year. It last amazing and as you can see I'm using it again this year. On this side of the room, I am using black bulletin board paper. Well I ran out of fabric paper last year and then got lazy to go back and get some more. So for now we have black. And I don't mind it. I love the crisp look it leaves. With the bright colors, it makes it stand out more and just so much more inviting!
Finally, this is my aide's desk. Some people think she's the teacher when they come in b/c her desk is so much bigger and nicer than mine! LOL I like to jazz up her desk as well with fun quote's posters I got home. The book bins are one of my newest additions to the classroom this year. I got them from Really Good Stuff. They have a new selection filled with tons of bright colored things.
Phew! Thank goodness that's done. I've been working on some things lately and excited to have them out soon!!
